As I was walking away (much to my daughter's horror at my unspeakably embarrasing act), I noticed the owners of the vehicle approaching, so we hastily entered the Walmart.
Upon returning to our car, it was raining and I had to use the wipers. It wasn't until we were home unloading our groceries that my daughter excitedly yelled for me to come out to the car. There, under my wiper, was a 1998 Howie Long NFL card, which somehow survived the rain and wipers and went unoticed by us until we got home.
As I have never been to a Raider game, but have been a huge fan for over 35 years, and topping my bucket list is a trip to the "Black Hole" one day, this was a special fan-to-fan moment for me. I promptly took a photo of the card and posted the story to my Facebook.
